Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's party camped on a sand dune in Al Khatam or Al Humrah sands south of Al Ain. In the near right distance Salim bin Kabina, a tribesman of the Bayt Imani lineage of Rashid Bedouin, pulls on the head rope of a camel standing in the middle of the camp amongst scattered piles of gear. Behind him Muhammad bin Al Jabari, a tribesman of the Awamir Bedouin, walks towards the far right. At the far left another member of the party rests in the sand beside a camel. In the background a low dune rises behind the men, on which scattered clumps of vegetation grow.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
